PC asked for administrative rights when I tried to change date and time that somehow got set for Jan. 2007 which may have happened when I system restored it a few weeks ago because it was made at that time.I am the only user and owner but PC thinks every site I go to is untrusted because licence or certificate is ahead of current date so firefox thinks it is fraudulent also.Can someone help me out

Why not boot into "safe-mode" as admin. then make changes. Of course, you need to know any password, etc to proceed.

boot the PC then press the key or key combination to access the system BIOS and change the time there.

If you are having system time problems it is likely that you need to replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard.
